3 On Your Side: City cleans up the old Dillard's property

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two days ago Three On Your Side reported about city owned property at Metro Center mall that was in a state of disrepair. Overgrown grass, broken plate glass windows and potholes laced the parking lot of the old Dillards department store.

When we returned to the store Friday, a city crew has cut the overgrown weeds and cleaned up the property. The city also trimmed the unsightly hedges surrounding the building. 

According to city spokeswoman Sheila Byrd, a public works department crew is set to fill in the potholes.

The city does not participate in the shared maintenance services at the south Jackson mall. They have to keep up their own property.

The building is up for sale. The asking price is $750-thousand dollars.
